THE Bonsall-Mercer Arithmetics cover the entire course in arithmetic for the primary and intermediate schools of the Philippine Islands. They aim to exclude cumbrous methods and useless material, and to appeal constantly to the pupil's ability to think.
The Primary books of this series are intended to supply the need long felt by both Filipino and American teachers for wellgraded elementary arithmetics, written in simple language, and making use of material familiar to the Filipino pupil. A judicious combination of the spiral and topical methods has not only made the grading progressive and easy, but has made possible a presentation of essentials which the pupil can readily comprehend. By means of numerous illustrations and problems dealing with subjects in which the pupils have a genuine interest, the school work is connected with real Philippine life.
The Primary Arithmetic, Parts I to III, Revised Edition, appears in two volumes, Parts I and II being bound together and intended for use throughout the first and second grades.
Part I, Revised Edition, treats of numbers from 1 to 10. For first grade number work, the illustrations and suggestions for seat work make it a valuable book in the hands of the teacher. When placed in the hands of the pupil at the beginning of the second grade, it furnishes an adequate and interesting review of the first grade number work. Part II, Revised Edition, treats of numbers to 100. It includes elementary notions of fractions, and introduces the simpler units of the
metric system. This book is written in language so simple that it does not need to be interpreted to the pupil.
Part III, Revised Edition, has been extended to cover the work of both the third and the fourth grades. It completes the primary school study of the fundamentals, and introduces the essentials of common and decimal fractions, easy exercises in percentage and interest, and practical work in weights and
In the revision of both of these books the authors have planned to give the pupils leaving school at the completion of the primary course a practical knowledge of the essentials of arithmetic, and at the same time to furnish a logical basis for the work offered in the intermediate grades. The revision has been made in accordance with the official recommendations of the Committee on Text-books, and the Committee on Primary Course of Study. The practice and drill work throughout has been greatly increased.
